The radio can be managed using a remote controller that can be fixed to your handlebar. The remote controller communicates with the helmet unit using wireless RF.

The Parrot interface allows for the use of voice dialing. The Parrot has a voice recognizing software that will dial the number of the person whose name you pronounce. No voice training is required.

You can "walk" through your dialing directory using the remote control, the Parrot will "read" out the names to you. The same applies to the FM radio, the Parrot will tell you which station you're listening to (if the station is RDS enabled).

The battery will last 10 hours while blasting away music, so enough for any long trip. In standby, the battery will last 600 hours. It takes 3 hours to fully charge the unit.

The helmet unit adds 102 grams to the weight of your helmet. The unit has been tested with the Garmin Zumo GPS (so you can receive navigation instructions), but not with the TomTom Rider (yet-this will be done shortly).

Remember, it is dangerous for you and others, to ride and talk on the telephone at the same time. Pull over to talk on your mobile phone!!

Comment: This looks like a nice unit for all of you who ride around alone (or don't want to talk to a pillion Dunno Smiley), but still want to listen to music and not be wired to your bike.
